Powerful and targeting demanding professional creators, the Acer ConceptD 7 Pro CN715-71P-79JW is a new high-end versatile ultrabook with 15 inch IPS 4K Pantone screen that runs on Windows 10 Pro. In its elegant white aluminum chassis, it incorporates an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 ray tracing graphics card to speed up processing and play recent titles, a large amount of RAM coupled to a Hexa Core i7 Coffee Lake Refresh processor for processing all the more fast as they are supported by an SSD RAID storage with a significant capacity of 2 TB. We also find a Wi-Fi ax connection, USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3 and double video output but also a backlit chiclet keyboard.

Chassis, connectors, screen of Acer ConceptD 7 Pro CN715-71P-79JW
It sports an elegant, sober and professional design with its white aluminum chassis.
Its cooling is ensured by the AeroBlade 3D 4th generation technology combining 3 fans (59 pale, 0.1mm) with heat pipes and ventilation grilles present both at the back and on the sides and below. The noise it produces is announced to be less than 40 dB.
This powerful professional Ultrabook targeting engineers, videographers, photographers, 3D animators or other AI specialists has good connectivity. It includes 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, wireless Wi-Fi ax modules ( better and more recent than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 to connect and communicate remotely, HDMI and mini video outputs DisplayPort useful for easily connecting this PC to a TV and / or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.
Of course, you can backlight the chiclet keyboard keys to correctly discern them in the dark. But here, no numeric keypad when it is a standard in 15 inches, which will not fail to disappoint some.
The absence of a biometric reader is also to be noted when we are dealing with a resolutely professional-oriented Ultrabook. It runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than Windows 10 classic with its advanced network management and security tools (e.g. BitLocker).
With its Pantone certification and its features 100% Adobe RGB, Delta E Performances, autonomy of the Acer ConceptD 7 Pro CN715-71P-79JW
The Acer ConceptD 7 Pro CN715-71P-79JW is for those who have a large budget and wish to invest in a powerful versatile laptop, oriented professionals and creation.
It benefits from the high-end dedicated NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 professional card with ray tracing and 16 GB of dedicated memory which considerably accelerates processing under software having the capacity to use the computing power of the GPU, such as Adobe Photoshop / Premiere, Sony Vegas, Catia or Autodesk.
At the level of a GeForce RTX 2080, the Quadro RTX 5000 is also capable of running the most recent games and greedy in graphics resources.
In this regard, keep in mind that 4K requires more calculations on the part of the GPU than Full HD, which results in particular in a lower number of fps.
NVIDIA Optimus embedded technology switches automatically and in real time according to the tasks accomplished between the Quadro RTX 5000 and the Intel UHD 630 solution integrated into the processor. Despite its very modest performance, the Intel UHD 630 is favored as much as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient and therefore implies better autonomy. The Quadro RTX 5000 is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the UHD 630, both of course allowing you to watch photos and videos.
To guarantee very fast multimedia processing, Acer houses in this Ultrabook a heart delivering global power capable of attracting the most demanding users. It indeed includes a Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh processor associated with a large amount of 32 GB RAM above the average.Suffice to say that in practice the difference is incommensurate with a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, particularly in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources exploiting multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
The storage is up to par. Composed of 2 SSDs of 1 TB configured in RAID 0, it offers a very comfortable total capacity of 2 TB above the average.
Above all, the 2 SSDs provide significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a simple hard drive. This benefits, for example, from accelerated processing, much faster start / stop and launch of software / games or even a faster arrival on online game cards.
Remember that compared to a hard drive, an SSD is much faster while being more energy efficient, more shock resistant and quieter.
Finally in terms of autonomy, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook which certainly is heard and heats up when strongly pushed but it remains very contained and well below average for this type of PC.
